Follow-Up to Post on Pat Burns and the Hockey Hall of Fame

Following up on my KK Members Blog of November 20 on Coach Burns passing and the shameful actions of the Hockey Hall of Fame.

To the eighteen voting members of the HHOF, please ignore your tendency to now postpone Pat Burns being voted in the Hall for a few years for his accomplishments. After being called out by virtually the entire hockey world, I know that some of the people who vote for the the Hall inclusion are probably now thinking that we can’t possibly put Pat Burns in the Hall of Fame for the next two years, because if we do that, it will admit we made a mistake.

My advice to the HHOF and special call out to Scotty Bowman who sits on the committee is: man up, admit you made a mistake and correct it with the next vote. Better yet, organize a teleconference, take a special vote and announce his election to the Hall of Fame before next Monday when he is laid to rest. And while you are at it, vote Fred Shero in at the same time.

People will have more respect for the Hall if you correct your mistake.

You have a second chance to get it right. Don’t blow it again.
